    Afternoon all!

    Hey guys. Just thought id introduce myself here

    From south wales and currently own a facelift EP3 civic type R with a few choice little mods.



    had it for just over a year now but im starting to fancy a change to be honest! Always being a big fan of the VAG/DUB scene an audi is on my list of possibles..

    Really fancy an 8p a3 at the moment, would love the 3.2 but a bit put off by the huge thread on here regarding idle/running problems

    also still a fan of the mk1 tt.. almost had one before the civic but ended up choosing this instead

    Anyways hello

    Josh

    Thanks sarah, trying not to be put off by it, seems like a great car though from what I can see an equivalent of the mk4 golf r32 just a little more understated and better value!

    well to put your mind at rest, I got the heitation done and its awsome!!!! so smooth.. dont be put off!!! All engines have their own issues just make sure whatever you get has been fully serviced and looked after.
    good luck!
